The Samsung Galaxy S4 price dropped to just $179 for AT&T customers.
Users can purchase the device in either red or white at this price with no annual contract. This is a pretty decent deal as the smartphone normally retails for $200 with a new two-year agreement.
The only catch with the Galaxy S4 deal is that users will have to sign up for a new line before buying it. Those looking to just purchase the phone could sign up for a new line and cancel it once it ships.
The carrier is also offering a like-new version of the Galaxy Note 3 for $249. This is at least $100 cheaper than buying the handset brand new on contract.
The price slashing on these Galaxy devices is most likely due to the recent release of the Galaxy S5.
It replaces the S4 as Samsung's current flagship device and features what the company deems a "glam" design with a perforated back plate that shines in different lighting conditions. It will have full LTE coverage, Wi-Fi MIMO 802.11 to cut down buffering, and a download booster that will allow users to download 1GB worth of media in 30 seconds.
Samsung has also drastically improved the battery that now provides users with 10 hours of web surfing, 12 hours of video playback and offers a new Ultra Power Saving mode. This new mode can grant the user another 24 hours' worth of power if their phone is at 10 percent. It does this by only keeping necessary functions on and turning the screen to black and white.
Samsung also decided to install a fingerprint swipe feature that users can utilize for authorizing payments. It can unlock a special private mode which secures all important documents, settings and files.
